Jung, Addiction and Archetypal Evil?

Interesting talk at AB about AA and Jung I thought -
Aeon Byte: Jung, Addiction, and Archetypal Evil
"Many are unaware that CG Jung’s ideas were instrumental in the creation of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Even less know that Jung and Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA, corresponded late in their lives. Their exchange provided unique insights into addiction, recovery, and the nature of evil.
What we gained is the Gnostic solution to the problem of theodicy, as well as the means for an alchemical redemption every person can attain. Astral Guest — David Schoen, author of
The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. Jung, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil."
EVIL spelled backwards is LIVE;-)

Posted on New Year's Day?
I saw the New Year in with a bottle of 'Devil's Corner' sparkling wine, so maybe there is a 
message in that bottle for me?-)
